Cyberpunk 2077’s Night City is hailed as one of the most open and immersive gaming experiences. How times have changed?
Oh my, oh my. It’s safe to state that many of us have fallen in love with Night City. Cyberpunk 2077 has undoubtedly received the recognition it merits. It’s been in impressive condition for quite a while now; however, with the advent update 2.0 and Phantom Liberty, CD Projekt RED devs have been able to make Cyberpunk 2077 realize its full potential.
The figures are precise. After the launch of Phantom Liberty, the game is set to surpass all previous releases. Phantom Liberty, Cyberpunk 2077, is expected to reach Starfield’s player count. That is quite an accomplishment in light of the place Cyberpunk got its start when it was launched in the year 2020.
Some players may want a 3rd person game. However, there’s plenty to like about. Some fans have discovered an unsettling new mystery that seems to be connected with The Witcher, while other players have found a poignant tribute to a player who passed away before Phantom Liberty’s launch. Phantom Liberty may provide exciting new quests and new characters (Hello Idris Elba); however, Night City remains the primary star. Reddit user karna771 started the discussion, suggesting Nighty City could be “one of the best settings ever created in a video game.”
The user said, “I don’t know whether it’s me or if anyone else is in a way enjoys the universe of Night City, and I believe that there’s something wonderful, unique, and special in it. I’ve always loved The Witcher games for this factor, but I feel this is even more true when playing Cyberpunk. The city is stunning in its design direction, scale, and scale, as well as its fineness in its architecture. There isn’t one single structure that is identical.”
They added, “You can combine this with how well the stories are that are told and how characters seem so real as if they possess personalities and emotions of their own. The result is the video game that gave me something I’ve never experienced in my entire life. […] I am certain that I’ll be able to recall this experience and the way I fell in love with the world and the atmosphere for a long time.”
It wasn’t just the user who was alone. Anastasia_of_Crete said, “They did an amazing job, never experienced anything like it in a video game, that level of visual detail, and scale for a city,” and Rouge_92 commented, “World building is incredible. I feel as if I’m living in Night City.” Is it too soon that we should bring back Project Orion?
